The Irish man Gary Spence is one busy man. This results from his fierce work to define his own sound where he got influenced by many sources. Electronic or not, music is a driving tool that made his own music world spin around a warm, sexy and melodic groove.
Already released with different labels and a remarkable album on Morris Audio Citysport, tpolar is now a familiar name to the DJs who dig house material with a funky vibe. He might not be yet known publicly, but is upcoming releases on
several netlabels will be a great opportunity for all of us to get charmed and seduced by his beats.
On Epsilonlab, tpolar serves "Boobcube" which might be a strange name but not necessarily weird music. Expect here light bouncy rythms, with ethereal melodic chords that might be associated to the german minimal techno. The happy hybrid will greatly fill your summer afternoon with bright moments!

Tristen Polar - Boobcube EP [EPS03]
TPolar is the moniker of Gary Spence, an irish knight working in his very own citadel of splattering minimal house. After recent releases on Morris Audio and the Substatic sublabel Karloff, he presents 4 liquid jams, settled somewhere between most appreciated minimal house
tactics and vintage Chicago elements. All four tracks are sort of an universe for itself, with unusual offside linearity between the dubs and hipassed strings. My favourite is "Bricks", an elastic flowing downbeatglitterhousejam, with ever surprising elements that show his versatility and truely unique way of composition.

Darn funky house.
Excellent, excellent quality house from the Episonlab chaps - funky, stylish, and extremely listenable, and definitely 'professional-grade'. Whatever that means. :)
